PCL Construction Achieves OSHA Blue Level Status for 13th Consecutive Year
DENVER — PCL Construction has achieved Blue Level status from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for the 13th consecutive year. The status rating is an outcome of a program created via a partnership between OSHA and the Associated General Contractors of America (AGC) to improve workplace safety among contractors and reduce illnesses, injuries and fatalities on construction sites (the program is referred to as the Construction Health and Safety Excellence, or CHASE).
“The program’s Blue Level status is the highest level a contractor can achieve, and this important accomplishment is a direct reflection of PCL’s commitment to a safe jobsite and work environment and our continued partnering relationship with the area OSHA offices,” said Steve Cox, PCL’s District Safety Manager. “In return for committing to such high safety standards, members of the AGC/OSHA CHASE Partnership receive certain incentives in exchange for their increased commitment to safety.”
PCL is a group of independent construction companies that carries out work across the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, and in Australia. These diverse operations in the civil infrastructure, heavy industrial, and buildings markets are supported by a strategic presence in 31 major centers. Together, these companies have an annual construction volume of more than $6 billion, making PCL one of the largest contracting organizations in North America.
